Horror/comedy “KILL ME NOW” makes on-line debutMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
Are you bummed out by the oh-so-serious horror fare invading theaters over the next few weeks? Well, fortunately, there’s a new horror/comedy venture that’s only a click away, as the people behind the independently produced KILL ME NOW have eschewed theaters and VOD, self-distributing the film through it’s official website.
A twist on the slasher film, KILL ME NOW (which can be downloaded here) pits the sinister Driller Killer (OUTPOST actor Brett Fancy) against a group of small-town teens who use their collective stupidity to fight back and survive the night. The film also stars SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE cast members Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney, as well as longtime Cracked.com personalities Michael Swaim and Daniel O’Brien. The film definitely seems funnier than one might expect from an under-the-radar humor-horror combo, and while it doesn’t seem as satirical as its bigger-budgeted contemporaries, the minds behind it seem to know the genre well enough to make a conscious parody that seems wittier than your average spoof.
KILL ME NOW was directed by music-video veteran Travis Long, and you can see the trailer below.
